The latest white paper from nowHIRE offers information on penalties for non-compliance, which can run up to $1,100 per violation, how E-Verify fits into the equation and how automation can take the headache out of the employment verification process.

By automating the process, companies can manage I-9 forms and verify employment eligibility through E-Verify from one system; remain fully compliant with I-9 regulations with respect to electronic processing, storing and tracking I-9s; and ensure all I-9s are complete, as well as transmitted and stored securely. The white paper outlines what companies should look for when choosing a vendor to automate their I-9 compliance, including:

? Confirming that the vendor is a federally approved E-Verify designated agent.
? Validating that the vendor offers users responsive, friendly customer service when questions arise.
? Verifying that the vendor’s system is Web-based or integrated, which gives users the flexibility to make changes when needed.
? Comprehensive online completion and virtual storage of signed I-9 forms and all Section II supporting documents for easy retrieval with a paperless system that will conserve resources.
? Easy-to-use guided workflow that auto-populates the I-9 and auto-error corrects potential costly mistakes.
